Liking' the interior too, but...

...the menus scream to be "tikified"

I'm up to the challenge if somebody can introduce me to the management for approval! G

Scott I saw you were there. I would like to hear what drinks you had and how they were if you could be so kind.

Interior looks awesome and the bar looks pretty big too which is always a plus.

Thanks for starting the post Scott!
I will post additional pix soon, but after Tonga Hut and Tiki No last night, I'm still in recovery mode.

I had the Zombie, a Mai Tai and a Blue Hawaii. Both the Mai Tai and the Zombie were served in a tiki mug, which was quite nice. The Mai Tai was the classic Trader Vic's recipe and was quite good. (I'm told that it will be $5 every night of the week!).

The Blue Hawaii was actually the best Blue Hawaii I've ever had. I'm not a big fan of that drink, but this one was really good.

The Zombie was the only questionable drink. It didn't taste quite like a Zombie, though I couldn't put my finger on what was amiss. They were really open to feedback about the cocktails, so they keep tweaking their recipe throughout the evening. I tasted one that Sherryaki had ordered later on and it was much better.

Of their original creations...I tried Sherriyaki's cocktail called Cat Nip, and Tonga Tom's drink, The All Black and both were good. I also tasted a drink called Rum Pot that Marty Lush ordered that I liked...but I shall let them tell you about their drinks.

I feel fairly positive about this new tiki destination. They really want to make sure the classic drinks are right and their originals are tasty. Both Josh and Joey were very welcoming and were very interested in our feedback. Full of the Aloha spirit.

Does anybody know their hours of operation?!?!

Or a phone number to call to find out the hours and other pertinent information?

Clicking on the link to the website takes you to some film company's site.

They are not open yet, Tobunga.

GROG give it two semi-opposable thumbs up. Never seen so much bamboo used in one place! Good use of space. Nice vibe. Drinks were good. Enjoyable music, too. Bartenders Josh, and Joey were attentive, open to suggestions, and very amiable.

GROG have Blue Hawaiian--GROG like.

Tasted other people's drinks. Liked the Rum Pot, Allblack, KBC. Liked the Zombie that Sherriyaki had. Don't remember if GROG taste Catnip. Didn't care for the Noho GROG.

It's still not finished. The stuff behind the bartenders was just put up on the walls for a private party the day before, just so they'd have something up on the walls. The two sided fireplace is nice, and there's a nice smoking area.

Thanks for the call last night Scott! To reiterate what Joe Banks and GROG have said, the interior of this place looks great, and the drinks are pretty darn good too! The only thing North Hollywood needs now is a shuttle that goes between Tonga Hut and Tiki No. These photos should give you a good feel for this bar, and the fun time we had last night.

Here's a slightly more legible shot of the menu...there's also a list of drinks on the back cover as well. I think they're all blended, and the two I tried were my least favorite. Most of what I tried on the inside was pretty tasty stuff though.






























This way to the bathroom...


You've got to know what time it is!














Here's the smoking patio, but they still need ashtrays
